BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  Brewers vs: Nutritional Yeast..?
Posted by: Golfzilla, Monday, January 18, 2010, 11:59am
The BTD shows brewers yeast to be a bene for me. Reading the GTD book indicates nutritional yeast a diamond for hunters. What is the difference if there is one ??)

What happened with your appointment Golfzilla????


Good morning! Thank you for remembering :) She is a very nice lady, as one can imagine quite informative! I even had my blood retyped to be sure because I was going from what was told me when I joined the Army in 72. I had read somewhere there could be a big margin for error in the military especially during times of large influx of recruits with the draft and all that was going on during Vietnam, etc...

My only concern is she indicated she had not yet measured many people and she kept reading the instructions on how to measure what which was not real reassuring...

Best I can tell I am a Hunter. I ordered my Swami and hope to see it today; I am waiting for him to tell me for sure. My ND is going to run her professional Swami and we are going to compare the Professional & Xpress and see what differences surface which should be interesting!

There are dietary changes between the BTD and what I can see as a Hunter so I want to be sure before I buy a bunch of different foods and supplements too...

Brewers Yeast and Nutritional Yeast have about the same nutrition value, so you get your choice, or you can use both. Great News!

Wow...the benefit of both versions.  You should learn a lot.

Even though the measuring thing may have disappointed you a bit (it would me), I am sure if the two of you came to the same conclusion, it is correct.  Don't you think?

Keep us posted, I find your info very informative.

We all were looking for you btw!

I most certainly will keep you al posted and I appreciate your interest ;)

Yeah, how cool is that! This is all so cool, can't wait to get my swami. I spent 11/2 hours with her which seemed like 15 minutes. I could have spent all day with her but she had others waiting so I reluctantly had to leave.

As I mentioned she is really nice and also has a very gentle spirit about her. It's all good!
Cheers :)

I was born in 72.  Today.  Anyways, when it comes to the measuring, take it upon yourself to understand it as thoroughly as possible.  I'd even get the Genotype kit to help.  I went to an IFHI practitioner in my area and she didn't know what she was doing with the measurements.  She told me she wasn't "trained" on it.  I was kind of disappointed.  She was a very nice lady though.

Unlike active baking yeast, nutritional yeast is grown solely for its nutritional value. It should not be confused with brewer’s yeast, a by-product of breweries and distilleries. Nutritional yeast is a low-fat, low-sodium. The cane and beet molasses used in the growing process does not make nutritional yeast sweet and is not a source of simple sugars.

and yes both have the same nutritional value, it is just that nutritional yeast has much nicer taste.

A big Happy & Healthly one to you! Indeed, it was somewhat disapointing but I think we have good measurements. The bonus is nice, I'm paying for being accurate...

Cheers!

Thanks Alek! I was fine with the brewers yeast taste, although I do put it in my protein shakes. But the better taste will be a bonus!

If they have the same nutritional value why is the nutritional yeast the one recommended for me as a hunter and not brewers ??)

Back in the '70's, when the natural food movement was bursting into life, brewers' yeast was all we had available.   It tasted bitter-ish, but it was good to have such a concentrated food to put in our foods and smoothies.  For the longest time, we called it all "brewers yeast" even long after it was nutritional yeast that was on the shelf.

This brings back good memories of the years when I raised chickens.  I kept three kinds:  
Rhode Island Reds, which gave big brown eggs
White Leghorns, which gave huge white eggs
and little Banthams, which gave little eggs, colored blue, green, yellow, etc.

The big hens didn't want to "set", but the Bantys loved to.  They were my broody birds.  So I pulled all the big white and brown eggs and tucked them underneath the little girls after they had settled in for the night.  They hatched out all the eggs and kept the chicks warm and safe;  good little foster mothers!   :D

Ok here is the answer!

Nutritional yeast, similar to brewer's yeast, is a deactivated yeast, usually Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is popular with vegans and vegetarians and may be used as an ingredient in recipes or as a condiment.[1] Nutritional yeast is produced by culturing the yeast with a mixture of sugarcane and beet molasses, then harvesting, washing, drying and packaging the yeast. It is commercially available in the form of flakes, or as a yellow powder similar in texture to cornmeal, and can be found in the bulk aisle of most natural food stores.


Nutritional yeast flakesIt is a source of protein and vitamins, especially the B-complex vitamins and is a complete protein. It is also naturally low in fat and sodium. Some brands of nutritional yeast, though not all, are fortified with vitamin B12. The vitamin B12 is produced separately from bacteria and then added to the yeast.

Nutritional yeast has a strong flavor that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy, which makes it popular as an ingredient in cheese substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of parmesan cheese. Another popular use is as a topping for popcorn. It can also be used in mashed and fried potatoes, as well as putting it into scrambled tofu or eggs. Some movie theaters offer it along with salt or cayenne pepper as a popcorn condiment.

In Australia it is sometimes sold as "savoury yeast flakes." In the United States it is sometimes referred to as "yeshi," an Ethiopian name meaning "for a thousand." In New Zealand, it has long been known as Brufax. In the UK Marigold Engevita Nutritional Yeast Flakes are available. Though "nutritional yeast" usually refers to commercial products, inadequately fed prisoners of war have used "home-grown" yeast to prevent vitamin deficiency.[1] Nutritional yeast is different from yeast extract, which has a very strong flavour and comes in the form of a dark brown paste. Other strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are commonly used for making beer, wine, and bread.

Nope.  Sorry if I gave the wrong message!  :-)  In the 70's we were slow to adapt to the name of the new product, so we continued calling it Brewers Yeast, even though it was, by then, Nutritional Yeast.

Kind of like calling boxed tissues Kleenex, even though there are now a zillion companies who make it.

My mom called all refrigerators "the Frigidaire", just because that was the first one she owned, waaaay back when.  

Hope that makes more sense.   ;)

Anytime! I'd like to do something for you after all you have done for me ;) Btw, how much do you take daily?

Blackstrap molasses IMO is fantastic mixed with cocoa... I agree sometimes by itself it can be a bit "yiiikes.... brrrrr...."tres cute!!!  Some plain licorice can be like that too; same reason I guess... :-/

Yes GF There is indeed always a silver lining or a good side to everything...I always say that!!
I thank my reactive skin (now that it is virtually under control) Its a bit of a barometer...& means that I don't keep going with food or product that is potentially not helping, or damaging my system... ;)
And at least I can still go to work & function, better than having to battle the effects of a migraine, or be debilitated & holed up in the smallest room... ::) ??) ;) Now that would be hard at work, as we only have a public toilet to use & its downstairs...& sometimes we do solo shifts :o ::)
